Synthesis and screening for the effects on human neutrophil functions and on COX1/COX2 activity. The synthesis of N-benzyi-2-chloroindole-3-carboxylic acids related to indomethacin is reported. These compounds were tested on in vitro human neutrophil activation. Some of them, more soluble in water, were tested to define the influence on prost...

Two inoculation methods were compared for assessing cocoa clone resistance to black pod (Phytophthora citrophthora) disease. Detached and attached pods from PA 30 and 81, BE 5 and 9, EEG 64 and SIC 864 clones were inoculated with P. citrophthora....

The reliability of biostratigraphic correlations in neritic carbonate platforms is often questioned because the benthic fauna on which biozonation is based are particularly sensitive to environmental change. It is crucial to know whether a populat...
